Feel Good Friday – Things That Made Me Smile This Week

Check out The Girl Next Door Grows Up and her Feel Good Friday post!

In attempt to lighten the mood after my two gratuitous self-realization posts, I am going to talk about some things that made me smile this week.

First this xtranormal video by Mompetiton. Check it out.

Did you see the comment about asking for an interview? Well, it happened, and here it is.

It makes me smile that someone can speak the truth in such a funny way AND get recognition for it. I think that is awesome!

The other thing that made me smile was this:

This was not a get-on-the-dog-statue-and-smile-for-the-camera pose. This was not a pose at all. The Babes just played and laughed together. And I just so happened to get a picture of it. This totally makes me feel good. Remember when I was stressing about whether they were going to get along or not? Now Marie is offering Thomas things like parts of her lunch or toys because as she says, “She’s thinking of him.”

You can’t see it, but there’s a puddle in my chest where my heart used to be.

On that note, have a great weekend!

I watched the clip and read the interview and I completely 100% agree. That is the single reason i dropped out of ECFE stuff when Emily was little. The mothers were witches and I am not about competition.

The only way I see bad mothers is if they do drugs or drink or do bad stuff. Not if they bottle feed or breast feed or don't go organic.

Renee Ann, Fiorella, Dollycas, thank you!

The Girl, I joined this group,and it was horrible. Luckily, I met a great group of ladies from that organization when Marie was just a baby, and we still get together. But the rest of that group and I did not mesh well.

What a fabulous picture, they are so sweet! Don't even get me started on the other stuff. Nobody has time to read my opinion on good and bad mothering. I agree with you 100% and that's all I'm going to say about that.

Love it! Love you!

You're right, this shot is so excellent partly because of it's non posed quality. The beautfiul children help too.

OMG I love the Mompetition site.

It's too bad they aren't cute at all.... ;-)
